SOURCE: How do I fit coil over rear springs on VW Golf mk4

first you can loosen the top strut nuts, they are accesses from the boot and the bolt tops may have an allen key top you can use to stop the piston spinning, then you will need to jack up back of car, one side at a time, unbolt bottom of existing shocks, place new ones inplace but bolt tops in first, if they dont fit as too long to get into the bottom bolt holes, try jacking the car as high as possible and get a friend to slowly but firmly push down on the rear wheel, (btw you do this with the wheels on, just as easy as off) and with that extra clearance you should get em in.. or there are spring compressors but I doubt they will be needed, or even possible on "in car mounted" springs.. goodluck, there are also several articles on, checkit!! :) Chas

SOURCE: 1995 Buick Regal Rear Leaf Spring Insulator Kit -

the job is extremely hard unless you have all the tools and a hydraulic lift like all mechanic shops. the insulator should work. the springs do need removal to install the insulator kit. Find a good mechanic.

How to change stuts

  • Rent a spring compressor before you start removing the old struts and putting on the new ones. You can rent a spring compressor at any auto store. You can also buy one, but if you are only going to use the compressor once, it's best to simply rent it. Jack up the car and remove the tire. Then place one jack stand on the side you are working on.
  • 2 Loosen the two lower bolts that hold the brake line to the strut you want to remove. Remove the cap covering the top of the strut, and while holding the coil over the strut, remove three nuts. Pull out the cover to the strut assembly.
  • 3 Tighten the spring using the spring compressor and remove the nut at the top of the strut. Decompress the spring, and the strut will be freed from the spring. Remove the front strut.
  • 4 Put in the new strut and bolt it back up. Replace the tire. You now have the old strut removed and the new one in place.
  • 5 Repeat Steps 1 through 4 when removing and replacing the rear strut.

  • I hope this helps!!! Thanks!!!

    Leaf spring replacement

    Yes but you need two thumbs. Jack the truck and support it on the frame ahead of the axel so the axel can hang on its own weight. Remove the bolts and mount to the bad spring - remove the axel mount first, Let the axel sag and put something under the tire to help hold it. Remove the spring mount bolts to the frame and lower the spring out the rear. reinstall is the reverse --- BUT --- the new spring may not fit right in the spring mounts. Mount the front bolt first and then the rear - you may have to use a pry-bar and force the spring into the rear mount.

    Rear springs replacement

    You will need a spring compressor first of all. You have to remove strut, compress sring to get cartridge and spring apart and then replace new spring on strut and replace into vehicle. This is a nasty job without a hoist
